Sharing the untold stories of the people joining our cities

About OurCity

What is OurCity?

OurCity is a crowdsourced photography project to foster openness in London towards asylum seekers, refugees, and other migrants. By letting people tell their personal story of life in a city, locals can see different perspectives on their city, and it re-humanises the people that are commonly reduced to statistics.

How does OurCity work?

OurCity works by providing local refugee centres with disposable cameras and then collecting and developing the results, publishing them on our site and Instagram.
